At midnight on 12/31/11 – 1/1/12 we always make it a tradition to bang pots and pans. Making and having traditions is important with us as a family. We have little family traditions all throughout the year that make holidays (and regular days) a bit more FUN!Normally we watch the movie Ben Hur… But Shelby got a Karaoke Machine for Christmas, so we had a ton of finger foods and a TON of singing and dancing!
What are some of your traditions? I would LOVE to hear about them.
Today, we enjoyed the sunshine (not often that it is this warm at our house in January… but today was about 65 degrees – by the end of next week we are back to cold and possible snow) We took the kids geocaching. If you haven’t heard of this… You have GOT to give this a try.
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting that my girlfriend Kim of TheOutdoorPrincess.com introduced us to many years ago. With geocaching, you use a GPS, enter in the coordinates and search for a hidden treasure. Sometimes those treasures are as simple as a piece of paper that you sign your name on, other times there are little trinkets that you can exchange with your own. Some of the neatest geocaches that our family has found contain travel bugs or geocoins that you can take, move to another location and track online. There is a local cache just down the road from us that has a history lesson in it that includes a newpaper article. We use geocaching as part of our PE for homeschooling.Thank you for visiting KrisandLarry.com - We are a homschooling, homesteading family from Arizona.
